AC Yellow

Recommended Posts

powermax_paul
I've been looking through the paint discussions for info on AC yellow, now that I got a B207 for Christmas. I've always used an AC orange tractor and equipment enamel for my powermax tractors even thouh it takes forever to dry. It's a good thick heavy duty paint. Anyway, has anyone looked at the Valspar website, specifically the Plastikote BPS Tractor & Equipment enamel? I wondered if anyone looked at the "Transport Yellow" and if that was too dark.

I tried transport yellow and did not care for it.Didn't have a good glossy sheen to it and the color was too rich a yellow. I wish Valspar had a better matching yellow, but I have not found it yet. I like the way valspar paints.

Thanks Travis, I guess I never thought about S/W. As a remodeling contractor, I have an account at the local S/W store. I wonder if I could special order in spray cans. I'll be painting piece by piece and would hate to have to clean the gun twenty zillion times. Paul

The S/W I have info. on is the automotive division, I'm not sure if the industrial side can use the same info. There are some locations that can mix the colors in an enamel and put it in an aresol can. travis

I called Sherwin-Williams and only certain stores can mix the paint. I ordered a quart of the the 9201 paint since the above post says 9201 is the cross for A/C 922982 and the brochure KENT posted says 922982 is the correct color for the B-10 tractors. It is $35.79 for a quart.
